Bundoora Site Remediation

Location Bundoora
Client Rugby Victoria
Sectors Land remediation

Symal conducted bulk earthworks for Rugby Victoria, developing new sporting fields in Bundoora. During excavation, contaminated waste was discovered, necessitating removal.

Various options were considered, including transporting the material to a landfill. However, due to cost and environmental considerations, the team chose on-site screening to separate contaminants.

This innovative approach not only allowed for the efficient reuse of fill material on-site for the subgrade but also facilitated the meticulous sorting of recyclable components like concrete, steel, and green waste. This resulted in a remarkable reduction, with less than 0.2% of the initial 6,000 tonnes of contaminated material needing disposal in landfill.
